Our flagship short, the Freel has been Outside Magazine’s Gear of the Year and is beloved by mountain bikers everywhere, from the Alps to the Bitterroots. Made with shrub-resistant and mud-deflecting nylon, the Freel is an enduro ready short that seamlessly takes you from the red rocks of Moab to the loamy single track of the PNW. With four-way stretch, deep pockets, and our unique collection of playful prints, the Freel is a beautifully designed short that’s still technical as hell. No compromises, it’s our favorite workhorse. 

AVAILABLE IN SIZES: 0-18

Sedona Nights: Inspired by time spent in the desert biking and playing in the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest with our friends at Pivot.

Overall I love them. You just can't forget to wear a belt!

The fit looks good but sometimes has issues while riding. I'm 5'8 and 140-145lbs and wear a size 6. Without a belt they would be sliding down while riding but the legs are a snug fit so I can't size down. Even with a belt I've had the seat of the pant snag on my seat which hasn't happened in other shorts. I have the yellow poppy one which is super fun and had been perfect for dry desert riding. I just moved to the PNW from the SW and the yellow is quickly getting stained by the mud which is a bummer and makes me wish there was a larger selection of darker colors. I was going to get one of the fungi ones but it will turn brown so quickly. Also the poppy designs are rubbing off on the seat and the stitching is coming undone in less than a year.

So overall they are comfy to ride in, have held up in crashes, but the designs and stitching don't seem to be that durable.

Hi Georgia - thank you for your review and feedback. We have updated the waistband so that it won't relax as much over time on this spring's Freel, Freda and Freyah styles and beyond. It's feedback from amazing people like you that helps us continually improve and create better product for women, so thank you!

Great shorts, a waist cinch would make them perfect

I have been on multiple rides with these shorts. The fabric is great, the length is great. The fit was really good until I rode in them. My one complaint is that the waist stretches out almost full size. This creates a problem when you are on and off your seat all the time. I have had them catch on the front of my bike seat a couple of times creating a bit of a hazard. They do have belt loops but the idea of wearing a belt while mt biking is pretty unappealing. (Too much stuff around the waist already, chamios, shorts, pack hip belt) I like to try and wear them for a fews rides before I wash them. They do seem to shrink back down after washing in cold and line drying. I might try to sew in my own system because I really do like everything else about the shorts. Please consider solving this problem and I would love to continue to buy these shorts!

Great fit, great look

Love these shorts! I wear chammies underneath most of the time, I’m 5’6” and 135-140 lbs and the size 4 is great. Works well with my fox knee pads, nice water resistant treatment for puddles or drizzly days, and who can argue with the amazing patterns? Only thing i would change is putting a zipper pocket on the lower left leg— when I’m doing lift served biking, I walk through the gates with my bike on the right, and would love to be able to put my pass in a zippered pocket on the left side.

Love the Fabric and color/design but the button unsnaps when bending over

I really love the fabric and design on the fabric - and that it is a little stretchy. However, when I bend over to tie my shoe or grab something on the ground, because its a snap and not a button or one of the metal grab clasps (not sure what they are called), it will un-snap. I am a bit heavier of a girl, but the next size up was too big. The shorts fit great while upright and are actually a little looser on the top, but with the shape of my stomach it pushes on the front when bending over. having a more stretchy/giving top part would be nice - to be tighter when upright and then still hug when bending over, but not overstretched that the snap pops open. Really cute, but had to give it less stars for the constant feel of my button possibly popping open.
